Sophie Fierz

Joshua Hargrave

Maximilian Janiszewski

Tasked with creating a piece utilising CGI and/or Special FX based on the book War of the Worlds by HG Wells, we developed this steampunk-inspired short packed with detailed scenery, gloomy lighting, suspense and action.

My work in the pipeline consisted of elements almost exclusively created within the software Autodesk Maya, where I was in charge of some modelling, most texturing, and all environment setup and lighting for the project. I also created the final title card of the short in After Effects, including its sound design.
